    Wayward Pines

    Did anyone watch this show? We DVR'd all this seasons episodes and binge watched them the last couple days. I was really hooked on it and read last night it still may come back for a 2nd season.

    What were your thoughts?

    It was okay. As usual, disappointing compared to the books but expected. Not sure how they can have a 2nd season. I thought it ended where the books ended?

    The previews looked interesting but then I saw it was produced by M. Night Shamalamadingdong so I decided to pass.


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    It was pretty good until the end, I suppose that suffered from not knowing if it would continue or not. Quite a few differences from the book.

    Yeah, that and Matt Dillon getting the starring role.

    I liked it. Good summer scifi show. Plus I thoroughly enjoy Carla Gugino

    She is really good. Actually, everyone in the show was good except Dillon.

    I enjoyed it, but I enjoyed the books better. The ending from the show was vastly different from the books. Neither ending was awesome, but the book's was better in my opinion.

    It is kind of hard to buy him as a non-moronic character.

    I thought the show was pretty interesting. The first half, where you didn't know anything about what was going on, what better than the ending.

    It will be interesting to see where they go with a second season.

    I didn't think it was that bad, kinda like the first season of Under the Dome. I assume it will get worse if they make more seasons like, Under the Dome.

    Re: Wayward Pines

    If they have a second season it will be beyond the books, right? Or am I forgetting something?

    Yeah I didn't read the book (I don't read books) so I had no idea going into it what to expect, but I got hooked on it.

    My wife watched it with me and she didn't read the books either. It was fun listening to her trying to figure out WTF was going on the first few episodes.

    Yeah early on in the show there was a conversation between Ethan and another guy that lead me to beleive that everyone their was kipnapped and placed there because they cheated on their significant other.
